Training material video for plastic monitoring

Methods of beach sampling for marine litter have been developed within the project BONUS MICROPOLL. Different areas of beaches require different strategies to sample marine litter representatively. In the following video three methods are explained and demonstrated:

  • The rake method
  • The tidal method (10sq. meters)
  • 100 meter method

The video serves as training material and the methods can be applied on all kind of beaches.
